"Dr. Ishaaya and key members of his service providers, including Nurse Practitioner Melissa Tauer and scheduler Anastasia (I hope I recall hers, accurately, as she is always a delight!), are consistently among the most personable, attentive, meticulously-detailed, and genuinely patient medical personnel in the HISTORY of my experience with doctors' offices. I have ALWAYS appreciated the thorough, exploratory approach to diagnosis and the healthiest strategies to remedies and healing. I sometimes catching myself marveling that I don't have "another question" after appointments there. It's unexpected and so appreciated that Dr. Ishaaya will typically call a day after a visit, to see how I'm feeling. I should add that I just had an extensive recent tele-visit with Melissa amid this Covid pandemic - and was beyond-satisfied with her level of care, thoughtfulness and time. I cannot recommend this office enough - for any of Dr. Ishaaya's specialties, or as a Primary Care Physician!"- J.S. / Google / Aug 06, 2020
"Great office and staff. My initial intake was super fast, and I was brought in immediately. Office was clean and safe. They had guest WiFi. Medical staff spoke to me immediately, and the doctor came in shortly after. The doctor was thorough and patient, and answered my questions. I was out of there in a short time, and was really pleased with the entire visit."- G.H. / Google / Aug 04, 2020
"Only a first visit so far, but impressed with the quality of service and facility. Nurse practitioner who saw me was nice, thorough and methodical which is what I’m looking for. Looking forward to going back for my tests and to see the Doctor himself. Thank you!"- F.O. / Google / Jul 29, 2020
